** This slow cooker chicken chili is full of flavor, but easy on prep-time Its the perfect weeknight meal when you need a little comfort food!
It seems like there are a lot of women around me that are having new babies lately, and that always brings forth memories of when your own children were teeny tiny newborns.
I think the first time I ever had White Chicken Chili was just after I brought my second baby home from the hospital. Some ladies from church came over with a giant pot of it, along with all the toppings, and served me up a giant bowl while I laid out on the couch. They then proceeded to snuggle my daughter, wash my dishes, fold some laundry, and helped me feel just a little bit more human again.
I don’t know if it was the exhaustion or what, but it was the most magical soup I have ever tasted and I have thought about it for the past three years. It only seemed fitting that I finally recreate it and take it to some of the mamas around me who are just bringing their own babies home.
Normally when it comes to making chili, I just dump things into the pot – it always turns out a little different, but its always good. I like that this white chicken chili is also good for just dumping – its very easy and mindless to prep, and the crock pot does all the work for you!
